Scholarship

Open: The Philosophy and Practices that are Revolutionizing Education and Science

Affordable education. Transparent science. Accessible scholarship. These ideals are slowly becoming a reality thanks to the open education, open science, and open access movements. Running separate—if parallel—courses, they all share a philosophy of equity, progress, and justice. This book shares the stories, motives, insights, and practical tips from global leaders in the open movement.

Published by Ubiquity Press, this book is freely available in digital formats (CC-BY) and from Amazon and Book Depository in print formats. The book has been reviewed in the Chronicle of Higher Education and in the Journal of Learning for Development.

A Compendium of Scales for Use in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Organized by topic, this compendium contains scale descriptions, validation information (if available), and marked references so scholars can examine past research that used each scale. In addition, the authors—each well established within their area of focus—provide advice on choosing appropriate scales, developing scales, and the types of scales the SoTL literature still needs. The e-book is divided into two sections, 1) choosing, using, developing, and validating scales, and 2) scales for use in SoTL including a broad range of topics such as critical thinking, learning and self-efficacy, professor-student relationships, well-being, service learning, and student perceptions of learning and teaching. Although this e-book will clearly be helpful to those just getting started in SoTL, it will be equally valuable to seasoned researchers or could serve as an excellent supplementary text for courses such as tests and measurements, research methods, and educational assessment.

Published by the Society for the Teaching of Psychology, this book is available as a free e-book.

Open Textbooks

Research Methods in Psychology

In 2013 I reviewed two open textbooks for the BC Open Textbook Project. One of these, for Research Methods in Psychology, was written by Paul C. Price (California State University, Fresno) and was good enough for me to consider adopting for my classes for the Fall 2013 semester (following a number of revisions).

In October 2015, I-Chant A. Chiang (Quest University) and I completed a major revision of the textbook for BCcampus.  The result was a comprehensive undergraduate textbook that incorporated recent developments within the field (e.g., the “replicability crisis,” Many Labs projects, open science practices, discussions of questionable research practices such as p-hacking). The second Canadian edition of this textbook is available free of cost and in a variety of digital formats.

This book has since been updated adapted for use by faculty at multiple institutions in the United States (e.g., Washington State University, Brooklyn College, Texas A&M University, Texarkana) as well as in New Zealand.

Most recently, Carrie Cuttler (Washington State University), Dana C. Leighton (Texas A&M University, Texarkana), and I worked together to update the textbook. Whereas each of us had previously revised this textbook separately, this was a collaborative project that spanned several months. With the assistance of the Rebus Community and drawing on the expertise of several peer reviewers, we produced the fourth edition of Research Methods in Psychology in August 2019.

Social Psychology

In early 2014 I was contracted by BC campus (along with Hammond Tarry) to revise an open textbook on Social Psychology (originally written  by Charles Stangor). The first international edition of this textbook is also available online, free of cost and in a variety of formats. Once again, please feel free to download and reuse, revise, remix, retain, and redistribute it.

NOBA Psychology

From 2015-16 I served as the Associate Editor of NOBA Psychology, where I edited a number of modules and ancillary resources for Introductory Psychology. In 2016 I wrote a NOBA module on Research Methods in Social Psychology.
